Chicken Ginger Biscuits

Chicken Ginger Biscuits

I was at the book store perusing the bargain aisle when I came across the Good Treats Cookbook for Dogs. I picked up the book and the first page I flipped to was a recipe for Pumpkin Twists. Needless to say, that recipe caught my attention. I continued to flip through the pages and found a lot of recipes that I thought the pugs would love. There were Banana Peanut Butter Biscuits, Apple Kissed Peanut Butter Treats and even some frozen treats that I thought would be perfect for the pugs after a walk in the hot FL evenings.

For my first dog treat baking experience I decided to try to make Chicken Ginger Biscuits. I was worried that the pugs weren't going to like them, but after they got their first taste Benny promptly scratched on the pantry door for more. Success!

Here is the recipe for the Chicken Ginger Bones if you would like to give it a shot.


  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup wheat germ
  • 1 tablespoon ground ginger
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth (I used low sodium)
  • 1 egg, slightly beaten
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil


Preheat oven to 375°F.

In a medium bowl, combine flour, wheat germ, and ginger.

In a second bowl, combine the chicken broth, egg and oil. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix until well blended.

On a lightly floured surface, knead the dough and roll out to 1/4 inch thickness. Using cookie cutters, cut into desired shapes. Combine dough scraps and repeat rolling and cutting into biscuits until all dough is used.

Place biscuits on a greased baking sheet and bake for 25 minutes.

Cool on a rack before serving.

Store biscuits in a sealed container.

Baby Benny’s Pugkin Bread Recipe

Benjamin, Henry & Luna waiting to eat pugkin bread

Ann was kind enough to send over her pugkin bread recipe for me to share.  So without further ado, here it is!

  • ½ c. unbleached all purpose flour
  • ½ c. whole wheat flour
  • ½ c. buckwheat flour
  • ½ c. old-fashioned oatmeal
  • 1 T. baking powder
  • 1 t. cinnamon
  • ¼ t. salt
  • ¼ t. nutmeg
  • ¼ t. ginger
  • 1 can pumpkin
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 T. flaxseed
  • 2 T. wheat germ
  • ½ c. milk
  • 2 T. plain yogurt
  • ¾ c. unsweetened applesauce

Blend ingredients and spoon into prepared (greased and floured) pans.  I use three small loaf pans…or you can use one large loaf pan.  Bake at 350 degrees for about 60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the middle of the loaf comes out clean.  Cool in the pans for about 10 minutes, then remove loafs to a rack and cool completely.  Serves three hungry pugs….or one Benny.

Note:  This is a very flexible recipe…you can add or subtract here and there to suit the tastes and food sensibilities of your pugs.  If they have allergies to milk or eggs, for example, add more applesauce to moisten the recipe.  I sometimes add a little more oatmeal (love that fiber!), adding just a touch more yogurt or milk for additional liquids.  Oh, and if the pugs will share, this is perfectly suitable for humans, particularly if you are trying to cut down on sugar in your diet.  One more note…I make my own applesauce for this recipe, and I make it using unpeeled apples.  More fiber and vitamins to boot!
